I feel as though Mrs. Higgins can be quite misunderstood. She is the kindest and when you go to her, she will help you with all of her efforts. Her prompts are ambiguous to give freedom and inspiration to the student's creative mind. She does not tell you exactly what she wants, but she gives you a structure to follow. I find her to be one of the most brilliant and inspiring teachers I've ever had, even moreso than my college professors. If you are struggling, simply ask for help!!

overall she pretty good as long as you read what is required, pretty nice as well. my only complaint is that her directions and due dates are a little sketchy and inconsistent sometimes.

her tests have nothing to do with anything she ever says. and her hw assignments are very unclear. but she seems nice. she cant explain very well and changes hw assignments at the last minutes.

She's not a bad teacher, but she's very vague about what she wants on projects, and she's really moody. She once yelled at me in class one day and apologized the next... go figure. You have to listen

she is super nice but her class can be very boring, she can have mood swings, her discussions do not prepare you for her difficult tests [especially close reading], gets hw assignments from internet

Mrs. Higgins is very soft spoken, but still a great teacher. You get a whole new perspective on her when you have her for a class besides english
